All Grain Double IPA HomeBrew Recipe

Profile: HomeBrew recipe for a Double IPA similar to Terrapin Hopzilla. A massive Double IPA at more than 10% ABV and over 100 IBUs. Aromas of tropical fruit and citrus. Full-bodied with resiny hop flavors and very light nutty malt notes from Maris Otter base malt. Dry finish with very high hop bitterness. Requires a good sized mash vessel due to the high amount of grain.



22 lbs Maris Otter

1 oz. Centennial 10%a, 30 minutes

1 oz. Chinook 13%a,  30 minutes

1 oz. Citra 12%a, 20 minutes

1/2 oz. Centennial 10%a, at flameout

1/2 oz. Chinook 13%a, at flameout

YeastWLP007 Dry English Ale or Wyeast 1098 British Ale

Dry-Hops: 2 oz. Citra (whole leaf)


Mash all grains for 1 hour at 152 degrees.

Sparge at 170 degrees.

One hour boil with hop regimen above.

Ferment at 65-68 degrees.

Rack to keg or secondary and age for 9 weeks. Add dry hops for the last 10 days.
